Senior Owners and their pets

Happy senior pet month, CHS supporters!

As November comes to a close, we wanted to bring you one more entry on senior pet month that isn’t talked about often, but is still very important: How to plan for pets when the owner is a senior.

We have been talking about senior pets all month on the blog, and we hope you’ve gotten a lot of good information. Today; however, we thought it would be important to talk about how we can plan for pets when the owners are seniors/older adults.

Good morning CHS Supporters! We hope you having a great week so far! As winter begins and you and your dog enjoy cooler walks, don’t forget to stay safe and bundle up!

Hello CHS Supporters!

It is a busy month here at Calgary Humane Society! With a HUGE influx of cats and birds at the shelter, our adoption staff have been working non-stop to help place them all in great homes. If you’ve stopped by the shelter you may have noticed our line-ups are a little longer than usual. We thank you all for your patience!

November is our celebration of senior pets! Adopting a senior pet can be a very rewarding experience, and we have many adopters at CHS who arrive at the shelter specifically in search of a senior animal to bring home. Today on the blog we’re bringing you a Q&A with some of our most popular senior animal adoption topics. (more…)
